the last 15 years. >> reporter: wuhayshi has a long history. he was osama bin laden's personal secretary in afghanistan. after 9/11, he fled with bin laden to the mountains of tora bora, surviving days of bombings. he wound up in iran and then deported and jailed in yemen. in 2006, he escaped from prison in a notorious jailbreak, emerging in 2008 to plot a deadly attack on the u.s. embassy in yemen. in 2009, he rose to the top of aqap. that year, the same organization tried to blow up a u.s. airliner on christmas day, in the so-called underwear bomber plot. this latest threat has revealed a stunning leak forward in al qaeda's communications. the u.s. intelligence community, cnn has learned, was able to intercept an encrypted messaging system that allowed several operatives to communicate at one time. in still another turn in wuhayshi's rare but growing communications, the associated press reports in mali, it discovered a letter from w wuhayshi to fellow terrorists to provide food, water, and garbage collection to the people in the area he controlled, perhaps his vision of an islamic stat
been issued since the u.s. braced for retaliation after american special operations killed osama bin laden two years ago. this time, multiple sources tell nbc news the threat originates from yemen from a plot by al qaeda's branch in the arabian peninsula. the suspected target or targets are not just american diplomats in embassies, but western interests in general. we're told the threat is credible, serious and time for now the tail end of ramadan. the location is believed to be in yemen, but some u.s. officials worried plotters could try to strike beyond that country and initiated a blanket, catch-all response. >> this is a serious threat, but it should be noted in light of what happened in benghazi that officials are taking no chances whatsoever. >> reporter: so why al qaeda in yemen? it has a core group of skilled bomb makers and propagandists who operate in areas where the government has little authority. the group is motivated and aggressive and under attack. last month one of the top leaders was killed in a drone attack. the group wants revenge. but when? u.s. officials have to
embassies this remains a very active plot led by osama bin laden's former personal secretary. across the mideast, u.s. embassies look like siege points. in yemen heavily armed local troops ring the american compound, manning security check points and patting down passers-by. from western africa to bangladesh, a 7,000-mile security belt was pulled tight. leaving 22 u.s. embassies and consulates dark and empty. >> there is a significant threat stream and we're reacting to it. >> reporter: u.s. intelligence intercepted al qaeda communications about an attack on strategically significant american interests. but the exact target remains unclear. >> we have received information that high level people from al qaeda in arabian peninsula are talking about a major attack. >> reporter: one official told abc news the part that is alarming is the confidence they show while communicating and air of certainty. one major worry explosives placed inside suicide bombers. we're concerned about surgically implanted devices. the official said. these are guys who have developed the techniques to defeat our
qaeda. we often saw owe osama bin laden putting pressure on affiliates in different places to carry out attacks but the final word on something like this is going to come from the people on the ground, the people in yemen, people like wuahyshi for the reason we're seeing today. communication back and forth between yemen and pakistan is easily intercepted. >> warner: and that probably explains the intensified u.s. drone strikes in yemen over the past week. finally, how aggressively is the government of yemen and this new president going after a.q.a.p. both on its own and in concert with the u.s.? >> right. well the new government under president hadi who was just in the u.s. last week meeting with president obama, president hadi has given the u.s. a green light to carry out strikes in a variety of different places at the times of the u.s. choosing. he's doing this because he has a lack of domestic support within yemen. so he needs the u.s. to make up for that lack of domestic support. so there's an open communication which is much different now than it was from when the former president
was a personal visit to osama bin laden. >> i've heard of him once or twice. part of the interest in a book like this, other than it bag great read, is the sort of fear and fascination with terrorism. do you feel like that fear is still as great in the population today as it was, say, ten years ago? >> it seems to be because we're seeing a new kind. they call it the clean skins. these are young men who the counterterrorist forces have never heard of, like the ones who did the boston bombing and the two nigerians who butchered that off-duty soldier in london. these are guys who seem to convert to insane, perhaps, certainly homicidal extremism, where even the drone can't penetrate. they are dangerous because there's no reported of them. they're just not on file. if they're on file, then, yes, usually if there's some big conspiracy involving chemicals and things, then yes, the counterterrorism forces intercept them, get a whisper, someone talks or sneaks. they have agents. when it's just one guy deciding, i am going to go and kill for allah, you can't do anything about it until he strikes. >> when

of two men from yemen including one who was a driver for osama bin laden. miss poitras is still working on the third installment in that trilogy which is about u.s. surveillance of phone calls and e-mails and so on since 9/11. she posted a bit of that one last year on "the new york
the u.s. find and kill osama bin laden. the judge cited procedural issues, and ordered a new trial. dr. shakil afridi faced 33 years behind bars for providing money and medical help to islamic militants, allegations he denied. he also ran a vaccination program for the c.i.a. that helped locate bin laden. another major disclosure has emerged from documents leaked by former intelligence analyst edward snowden. the so-called "black budget" details $52 billion in spending this year, for secret u.s. intelligence efforts. "the washington post" reports that, among other things, the national security agency was investigating up to 4,000 reports of possibly security breaches by its own employees, last year. in economic news, the commerce department announced growth last spring was much better than first estimated at an annual rate of 2.5%. the numbers helped wall street overcome worries about syria. the dow jones industrial average gained 16 points to close near 14,841. the nasdaq rose almost 27 points to close at 3,620. those are some of the day's major stories. now, back to judy. >> woodruff:
the delay of the criminal trial for osama bin laden's son-in-law and former al-qaeda spokesman sulaiman abu ghaith. in delaware, the sequester has meant lengthy employee furloughs at the clerk's office of the bankruptcy court, resulting in reduced customer service hours and the postponement of it upgrades that would aid the efficient resolution of those important cases. the cuts have not been deeper only because that office is already working with 40% fewer staff despite an increasing caseload, including many time-intensive mega cases, which are so important for the country's recovery. the delaware federal public defender's office has had to furlough its defenders 15 days this year, essentially cancelling the criminal docket every friday for the rest of the year. every day the public defenders are furloughed is another day that defendants spend in pre-trial incarceration, at a cost to the taxpayer of more than $100 per day. the defender's office has also had to sharply curtail expenditures for investigators and experts, which may be leading to a decrease in the quality of representation, le
don't see how a president who ran for his second term boasting about how he got osama bin laden, one bullet to the head and another to the heart has any grounds to quarrel with the concept. but the white house does not seem to be on board with that suggestion. here is jay carney at the press briefing. >> the president weighs his options. does he want to take out asad and would his death be a welcomed outcome at this white house? >> i appreciate the question and i want to make clear that the opgs we're considering are not about regime change. they are about responding to clear violation of an international standard that prohibits the use of chemical weapons. jon: brett stephens jon:s us now. you think jay is wrong. >> yes. and i think what we risk doing is an operation that puts the u.s. airmen, soldiers and sailors potentially in harm's way to accomplish very little. you don't undertake a military strike unless you have a genuine military objective. you don't undertake military strikes just to make a political statement or vindicate the president's threat from last year and earlier t

crookshank says there is a new twist. al qaeda's leader in yemen, once osama bin laden's personal secretary, is now reportedly the second command in the organization worldwide. is this an opportunity, potentially, then, for him to make his mark? >> it may well be. this is his coming out party as the de facto number two of al qaeda. the plot was in the works at the same time as this announcement was going to come out that he was playing this bigger role in the al qaeda global terrorist network. >> reporter: president obama stuck to his planned weekend schedule, golfing and going to camp david for his birthday. a white house official says the president will continue to be updated about the threat through the weekend. the white house says it will not comment on intelligence in this case, particularly as it relates to a "new york times" report that says some of this intelligence came from intercepted electronic communications between senior al qaeda operatives. our terrorism expert, paul cruickshank says regardless of what happens because of this threat, the terrorists have caused enough concer
international concern. u.s. sources tell nbc news it was this man who replaced osama bin laden to head al qaeda that said he wanted to do something big. a massive attack during these, the final days of the muslim month of ramadan. the target wasn't very specific, but the assassins tapped for the job were. al qaeda's most capable branch located in yemen, but they were intercepted leading washington to close 20 posts at least through the weekend and issue travel alerts through august. >> we have to be continually vigilant and have been. >> reporter: today americans were told to leave yemen where al qaeda established a base. >> they have people that are very determined and very patient in attempting to carry out these attacks against the united states. >> reporter: they have especially skilled bomb makers. it was al qaeda in yemen that put an underwear bomb on a flight to detroit and sent a printer cartridge bomb to chicago. it's no surprise the man that took over from bin laden tapped his branch for a big attack. it's been creative, aggressive, and determined to attack the united states. yemeni o
the pakistani physician who famously helped u.s. forces find osama bin laden and was promptly imprisoned by pakistani s. in the face of that, this administration sat idle and did nothing to get him sprung. there is an informal contract we make between the people who help us and other countries and the united states. we are in these two cases falling down and not upholding our end. it's shameful. >> meyer said it here on fox and says it in his new book, i couldn't have gotten out of this firefight without his help. he helped me carry guys out, he helped me save american lives. to turn our backs on them, he know where he's living. we know we could swoop in and get this guy out of there and help him and get him to the united states. why this visa is being slow walked is beyond me. >> it says that -- i'm reading this article now, they've signed off on the application, a general did, general dunford, then it was green lighted by the u.s. embassy in kabul and then the application was sent to the u.s. state department visa's department for vetting according to the person who wrote this article.
you believe that osama bin laden head for five years in pakistan without anybody in the military or intelligence knowing about it? >> that i'm going to ask you for ten words. they don't believe it? >> then is just my opinion. i don't think the general knew that. i don't think that the leadership -- i don't think there was a plan for where he was the this was 700 meters from the gates of west point. who knows what 700 meters, but the reality is a three distinct and compound -- it was like a funny house at the end of the street people didn't act the same as everybody else in the neighborhood in the area where people are not naturally trusting. so, somebody facility did something. malae sort of buying into the idea that the ambassador and i were talking it's not official but it can be someone that has relationships with officials was actually providing the health and there is a failure to ask questions that need to be asked and a due diligence. >> if you read president musharraf's book, he talks about [inaudible] and sestak then there were three houses that were al qaeda houses that
of osama bin laden come of the president's reelection campaign and you may know her from her great work with the politics team at usa today and the managing editor of the american journalism review. next to rachel is jen pendry and who is not on your program. originally we were going to have an al jazeera reporter here but she has gone over to the mainstream and is now working for cnn, making her ineligible for the panel. so jen kindly agreed to step in and we appreciate that. she is the white house reporter for the huffington post and covers leadership on capitol hill. she joined huffington post a couple of years ago and spent years covering the legislative and executive wrenches of government for "rollcall." probably a walk in the park for her because she started covering the texas state legislature. again, stepping in for camille, so thank you for that. next to jen is john stanton who also has "rollcall" roots rate he is the chair of buzz feed here in washington. then smith, the editor described him as a reporter's reporter with being in his veins. he's a third-generation news man an
the training camps were. on 9/11 we did not know that. we knew osama bin laden was back, but that was the extent of our knowledge. the way we kept the country safe was get that intelligence and according to the agency itself, the way we did that was by subjecting him -- because he was subjected more than anybody else to enhanced interrogation techniques. this administration does not get it. they do not. obama made a speech here not too long ago to the national defense university in may and basically said ok, now we are returning back to the pre-9/11 days. we are not at war anymore. we are going back to pre-9/11. we will go try to round up the guys when they blow up. we are no longer on a war footing, if you will, in terms of thinking about the state we're in. i think that is dead wrong. it is an absolute total misreading of where we find ourselves today. as i look at that part of the world am a north africa, a good part of the middle east, not just afghanistan, where they launched 9/11 from, but also yemen and the major struggle underway in egypt, the muslim brotherhood
